Whenever I was in the car as a little boy, my father would point excitedly at any sign that said “construction” and exclaim:“Look Jonny! Construction. That’s what Daddy does.”I was barely old enough to read simple sentences like “See Jane run” and “See Spot run,” but from an early age I could recognize the word “construction” amidst a world of language I had yet to fully appreciate.I was too young to know it then, but what my father had instilled in me – besides an early recognition of bigger words – was the sense of joy and purpose he received from what he did. And it was this passion for a labor of love that I’ve taken into my adult life. It’s something I’m sharing with my own sons.What about you? What have you learned from your father that inspires you? And if you’re a parent, what do you hope to inspire in your children? Comment below and share you story!
